I did not sleep all of Friday and was a zombie on Saturday. I met with the guys to see if they wanted lunch before going to America, but they decided that they were too tired and it was time to go home. I had a blast with them and then got paid (which always makes me feel guilty, but hey… it is a business!)
With cash on my pocket and since I had already gotten published and money was on the way, I got lazy for the rest of the weekend and did not work but instead watched Netflix, EVO2015 and party. I got wasted and passed out in a closet on Sunday at Pedro’s birthday bash, a party with all them cool cats from TJ, free Kokopelli tacos and DJ Chucuchu playing on the rain (Pedro is your neighborhood Mr. Nice Guy). This made me a complete zombie again for Monday and did not published here in my blog… oops!
Now, I have plenty of work to do and the rest of week to do it (and run errands! how fun). I feel like doing nothing and enjoying my momentarily success, this is barely a scratch of my potential, pero… la hueva! Anyway, during my awesome moments of laziness, I got to watch two movies with Julianne Moore. Julianne became a favorite immediately after watching Children of Men. So much talent and guess what, she was awesome every time I saw her in person. The first movie was “Don Jon,” where she plays a cougar that went back to community college and seduces Joseph Gordon-Levitt, I don’t even like redheads, but you can’t help but feel jealousy for Gordon-Levitt’s character….
The second was the award winning “Still Alice,” though a slow movie with shitty actress Kristen Stewart (she was ok in it) and Alec Baldwin (who is sort of a dick), the movie was still AWESOME because of Julianne Moore. I’m a shitty movie critic since I am bias to the people I saw, but hey, here are pictures of Moore smiling at the camera at LAX. No special memories from her, just that she was always super nice and did not care about her picture taken.
Pictures from October 20, 2009 late at night. Her smile is pretty much the same in every set, yet looks completely genuine.
January 14, 2010 again at night (since picture is flash, which I do not prefer). February 10, 2010, arriving from Paris late at night and she still is a super nice person and smiles.

Can’t Buy Me Love character Amanda Peterson has died at her home in Greeley, Colorado yesterday afternoon.
As for cause of death, Peterson’s father says they don’t know the official cause of death but says, “She had some illness and a sleep apnea problem that may have contributed.”
Peterson became a superstar playing Cindy Mancini opposite Patrick Dempsey in the 1987 romantic comedy, but she left the entertainment industry altogether in 1994 and had been living in Colorado for years.
I must have seen Can’t Buy Me Love like a hundred times. I loved this movie because of Amanda Peterson because I wanted a girlfriend just like her. I super fun and cute chick to hang out with but the movie also had Patrick Dempsey before he was McDreamy as an everyday guy that had a genius idea that he could just buy popularity and love.
But as we all know, you Can’t Buy me Love.
RIP Amanda Peterson aka Cindy Mancini thanks for the memories
On Saturday me and Drew went to this year’s AMF2015, it’s sixth edition. I previewed all the bands a week before going and none caught my attention. I felt basically the same way throughout the fest though I was really trying to enjoy everything. So I did what everyone does at a festival like this and took some drugs. Instead of loosing me up and making myself have a good time, I locked my brain in a shell and all I could think of was work. The only thing that was in my mind was talking shit about the show. But in reality, there can be no complains. The people of Tj just ask for way too much and the fest got overhyped. Yes, many bands were subpar and the sound did a lot of mistakes. But for the price of admission and every thing that was done, there can be no shit talking. I sent an article about it to the San Diego Reader already and I have low expectations about it, but still hoping it will get published.

According to the NY Daily News, the Charleston Church where nine people were killed in a racist’s rampage is going to re-open Sunday, congregation members said.
“Mother” Emanuel AME Church will open for Sunday school at 8:30 a.m. and a service at 9 a.m., parishioner Cassie Watson told the Associated Press.
It was not immediately clear how many people were expected to attend on Sunday, although thousands flocked to vigils throughout the week.
Rose Mary Singleton, whose aunt Ethel Lance was killed in suspected shooter Dylann Roof’s massacre, said she may have to hold off on attending services at the church she’s gone to for more than 50 years.
“For me, it will be very hard to walk into that church,” Singleton told the Post and Courier. “You want to go back, but your heart tells you it will be so difficult.”
A cleaning crew finished scrubbing the remnants of Wednesday night’s bloodbath Saturday, allowing about a dozen people to enter through a side door to pay their respects in an emotional meeting as people paid tribute at memorials outside.
“They did a good job cleaning it up,” parishioner Harold Washington said. “There were a few bullet holes around but…they cut them out so you don’t see the actual holes.”
Washington expects Sunday’s service to be “a touching moment – a lot of crying, hugging.”
What are your thoughts on the shooting and the Church opening up again?
Jon Stewart apologized to his audience tonight for not having any jokes for them, as he just dropped the comedy to get serious about Charleston. He said, “I honestly have nothing, other than just sadness.”
“By acknowledging it,” Stewart pointed out, “by staring into that and seeing it for what it is, we still won’t do jackshit. Yeah, that’s us. That’s the part that blows my mind.”
He contrasted how the U.S. does whatever it can to protect everyone from foreign threats, but has an “eh, what are you gonna do?” attitude to domestic threats.
Stewart brought up the racial wounds being opened in Charleston, especially invoking how South Carolina still flies the Confederate flag and has roads named for Confederate generals.
He sarcastically added, “And the white guy’s the one who feels like his country’s being taken away from him.”
